Mycenae Travel Guide: 69 reviews and 303 photos


Located 50 km ( 31 miles ) south of Corinth and 115 km ( 71 miles ) southwest of Athens. The ancient Acropolis of Mycenae can be found in the north-east part of Peloponnisos in Argolis.
The German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann began to excavate at MYCENAE in 1874.
People settled here as long ago as 3000 B.C. Mycenae lays between two protective mountains and is a superb natural citadel. The site overlooks one of the richest plains in Greece.
Be sure to see the Citadel, Lions Gate, Grave Circle A and the Treasury of Atreus (Tomb of Agamemnon)

    Mycenae sounds to be an interesting place to visit, and I hope to go there one day, and to see the Lions Gate!

    Your tips bring back memories of a very interesting afternoon I spent in Mycenae many years ago. I remember those lions on the Lions Gate.
